The catalog describes the Northern's academic programs, curriculum, and regulations. The provisions of the catalog are not to be regarded as an irrevocable contract between the student and the college.
While every effort is made to insure the accuracy of the information available at the time the catalog is prepared, Northern reserves the right to make changes, at any time, without prior notice.
Note: In 2014, Northern completed a review of the total credit hours required to earn an associate and bachelor’s degree. For most associate and bachelor’s degrees, the review led to a reduction of required hours to 60 and 120 respectively. Due to accreditation requirements and other industry regulations, some degrees may require additional hours. These credit hour changes are reflected in the Amended 2015-2016 Catalog.
